This easy-to-follow guide to provincial French cooking contains over 200 of celebrity English chef Keith Floyd’s favorite rustic dishes from the beautiful French countryside.

Keith Floyd, passionate cook, returns to France, the country where he learned to savour the pleasures of good eating and drinking. With around 300 recipes — a highly personal selection of some of the favourite dishes that have delighted him over the years — Floyd on France, Keith Floyd's book, based on his BBC 2 series, reflects the rich variety of cooking as it is enjoyed in the cafés add restaurants and at the family tables of provincial France from Brittany to Provence and from Burgundy to Languedoc. The classic flavours of French country cooking — the slow-simmering stews, the succulent roasts, the creamy sauces, the melting flans — are lovingly celebrated and recreated in this vastly entertaining and informative guide with all the sunshine colours, the panache and the poetry of a Gauguin or a Van Gogh.
